The Missing Ally


This is a different feeling altogether.

When two men work as a team in all games and crimes, there is this synchronous execution of plans. One man plans it and the other executes it in his own unmatched style. When one loses the grip of the task, the other picks up the momentum and balances the ship. This is an ultimate team that one would dream of.

When the Batman loses his ally, Robin, or vice versa, there is a big void created. Both the Batman and Robin know it very well. They know that both rely on each other at crucial moments.

But now, the team has to split up. The thrill of a crime is lost when your best ally is missing.

The world has seen it. Some of the best music bands have tasted phenomenal success when they worked as a team. Their decline was easily visible when the team was split.

The journey with the best teammate is sometimes a onetime journey. At some point, the journey has to end. From there on, it’s a different journey with the leftover footprints.

This post is about the void and the feeling felt when one loses his ally. Have you felt it? If yes, do drop in your comments.

The Disagreement Between Mind and Heart


Said the Heart with broken bones,

Hey Mind, you are too cruel.

Grinned the Mind with a sarcastic tone,

Sorry Heart, but you couldn’t endure the ordeal.

Listen Mind, you must slow down your pace,

As the cocktail of emotions are killing me.

My heart is feeble to catch up with this unending race,

As the cocktail of mixed feelings are draining me.

 Listen Mind, it takes seconds for you to erase the memories,

Just seconds to shift your attention to the future.

But my Heart is tied up to the ropes of miseries,

Doubtful about the possibility of the closure.

Listen Heart, try to fix the wrinkles of life,

By accepting the reality with open eyes.

Try to cut the ropes of miseries with the diamond knife,

As it’s time to look at the skies.

Yes, he is also a human being with emotions and feelings,
Yes, he has a hell lot of rebellion and turmoil going inside him,
Yes, he is clueless at times
Yes, he has his own likes, dislikes, ambitions and hopes,

Yes, ‘She’ makes him weak,
Yes, ‘She’ makes him cry,
Yes, ‘She’ makes him strong,
Yes, ‘She’ makes him smile,

Yes, he thinks about ‘Her’ round the clock,
Yes, he is mad about ‘Her’,

Yes, he knows that he can’t forget ‘Her’,
Yet still, he will forget ‘Her’…
